Into the unknown as Vuelta a España tackles new summit finish at Pico Villuercas – Preview


From the Angliru in 1999 through to Calar Alto in 2004, the Sierra de Pandera in 2006, the Puerto de Machucos in 2017, one of the modern-day Vuelta a España’s best-known trademarks is its capacity to discover new, brutally difficult, summit finishes inside Spain.

But if the toughest, new giant, climbing finale, the Alto de Gamoniteiru in this year’s third week is keenly anticipated by Vuelta fans, the unprecedented final ascent of the 14.7km Pico de Villuercas this Saturday on stage 14 should not be underestimated, either. Especially as it will be tackled not once, but twice.
